Certification: Your Elevator Pitch as an Etiquette Expert

Your Elevator Pitch as an Etiquette Expert

This One Tip Will Get You Noticed When You Introduce Yourself as an Etiquette Expert

Imagine this:  you walk into a networking lunch.  You meet someone and you strike up a conversation.  One thing leads to another and you ask them about their business….after all this is a business function.  You are there for a reason…to meet other business owners.  

This person tells you they are an accountant.  You smile make small talk and then you find yourself in a completely different circle of people.  Another conversation and you are speaking again to an accountant.  This one however, is very different.  Instead of telling you they are an accountant, they set a scene for you.  Here is how THEY answer the question, “what do you do or what is your business”:

“Have you ever procrastinated in preparing your taxes? I am the person that guides you through each month of the year with an easy system that only requires you to hit the “print” in January”. My name is Joan and I am an accountant that makes tax prep easy.

You are curious. You listen. You want to learn more about Joan.  In fact, you want to hire her on the spot.

Which accountant would you hire?

Here is Your Elevator Pitch as Etiquette Expert

My goal is to guide you through every step of starting a business teaching manners to children.  

Often, I have mentioned the importance of networking whether you go to an organized business event or meeting your child’s teacher at school.  

Now that you are a business owner, you must introduce yourself with intention.  You need an elevator pitch.  An elevator pitch is telling someone about what you do or who you are in less than 30 seconds. 

You must be prepared in advance to do this well. 

Here is an example of What NOT to Say as an etiquette expert:

“Hello, my name is Lisa and I teach manners”.

Try this instead:  

“You may have heard parents or teachers comment on how our youth today are a bit too attached to their phones or at times, rude. That is where I come in and help. I make a meaningful mark by teaching children how it feels to have good manners and to treat others with kindness and respect.  My name is Joan Smith and I am the founder of My Manners Business.”

I am happy to share all that I know about teaching manners to children.

Start with the best.  Check out our website and see how other licensees have gotten a fast start using our system.  We have videos of other licensee’s being interviewed about their new business.  At the end of this article, you will find the videos in the “Links and Resources” section below.

Etiquette Certification: A New Licensee’s Website

Sylvia Jones is a new licensee.  She received her certification in April of this year.  You may remember her.  I interviewed Sylvia and you will find a replay of the video/interview in the “Links and Resources” section of this article.  

You may have heard me mention my licensees that stay in touch with me are the ones that are most successful.  Here is proof.

Sylvia got a fast start with her business.  She asked the right questions, took action and started teaching etiquette in her community immediately.  In fact, on June 7 she texted a copy of a flyer for an event where she was one of the guest speakers.  The name of the event was “ Grace, Heels, and Etiquette 101”!

Sylvia again followed up to let me know the event went well and received great feedback from the event organizer and the children that attended.  

Etiquette Certification and Marketing:  We Can Help You

When we train and certify you, we not only teach you the details of etiquette but provide the absolute best guidance on how to start and market your new business.  This includes all social media platforms as well as your website….if you choose to have one.

Take a look at Sylvia’s website (link below). It is concise, and the site focuses on her customer.  Her photos tell a story. The site is easy to navigate.  She has a professional headshot and guides her viewers to let them know exactly what she is offering.

I Can’t Believe What I Read on Facebook Today

Do you ever read the comments on Facebook posts?  I do from time to time.  

Not much surprises me anymore…how about you? 

This comment, however caused me to pause as it is a bit “old school”.

Here is the comment:

“Why should we teach manners to children?  Shouldn’t this be taught at home?”

Yes, of course, in an ideal world, teaching manners to children begins at home. 

At Manners To Go, we believe every child deserves to learn manners.

In today’s increasingly digital world, it’s more crucial than ever for children to understand how to behave appropriately in different social situations. Too many children aren’t learning these important skills at home – and it is negatively impacting their ability to thrive and succeed.

As an etiquette expert with 20 years experience, I can attest to the huge difference it makes in a child’s life.  

I would be delighted to share my experiences with you.  Click the button below to schedule a time to speak.  You will be directed to my online calendar.

how to start etiquette business

Capture a child’s attention:  In today’s world of technology and lack of human connection, you must be enthusiastic about what you are doing….teaching.  Spark a child’s curiosity.  Be prepared when you teach a class.  Tell stories that interest them.  Make it personal.  

Model the behavior you are teaching.  Be fully present when you are in front of class.  Encourage engagement by asking questions.  Role-play as often as you can.  This keeps it interesting.  

Put your devices away and make eye contact with them.

Etiquette Expert: How I Built My Business Teaching Manners to Children

Why You Should Be Trained to Teach Manners to Children

Why You Need to Be Trained to Teach Manners to Children?

All of you are on my mind today. As I was researching and preparing for a presentation on business etiquette, I found an article that says “ Emotional Intelligence is the most important job skill in 2020.

Today’s youth need emotional intelligence.  They need to learn basic manners, empathy and kindness.

If we are to remain competitive in a global environment, we must prepare our children.  They need technical skills but they also need to be emotionally equipped.

Emotional Intelligence is often referred to as Social Emotional Learning or SEL in our schools today.

Our children and teens need skills such as:

  • Self-awareness
  • Empathy
  • Managing emotions
  • Respect
  • Social skills
  • Character

Teachers, associations and parents need you, the etiquette expert, to teach and guide our youth toward emotional intelligence.

You are on my mind because of the need our youth has for your skills.  The world needs what you have to offer.

Why You Need to Be Trained to Teach Manners to Children?

At Manners To Go, we give you the tools to get started teaching manners to children.  We assist and guide you on how to develop the skill set to start a business. 

We give you the training to teach children how to be self-assured, confident and kind to others.  

If an educator contacts you about a school assembly, we provide you with the complete package to meet their needs.

When a parent contacts you to teach table manners in their home, you know exactly what to do. 

If a country club needs an outside consultant to provide programming for their members, you have a plan. 

Here is how you get started on your etiquette certification and training:

Step 1

Choose:  Choose your ideal training.  We have two options for you to become certified and trained to start your business.  

One option is four, one hour “live” video trainings.  You schedule the sessions according to your timeframe.  Most choose to have their training once a week, some twice. These sessions are private….the two of us on a video call.

Step 3

Become certified:  Once you have completed your certification, you are now licensed by us to teach manners to children.  We will send the certification and you will be able to display this certification on your website to associate your new business with ours.
